    "..sith (since, to that) thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee." Esau was the firstborn son of Isaac, and Jacob's older twin brother; but he chose instead to be a son of the devil and a heathen hater of the Lord! Born into the chosen Family through whom Christ was announced to come into the world; from his youth Esau despised with deepest contempt the things of God and religion.

    Verse 15: The Edomites rejoiced at the downfall of their brothers the Israelites. This chapter shows that Jehovah God was displeased with this attitude and he would bring punishment upon the Edomites for this wrong attitude.

    Those of Mt. Seir are Esau Edom the elder brother of Jacob. They are, as stated a perpetual enemy of Jacob Israel and are hated by The LORD God of Israel see Malachi 2 3. The context there is that God has always hated Esau and will always hate him. Esau Edom 's fate is set forth in Obidiah verse 18!

    This chapter is pertinent regarding the current 2014 conflict in Gaza, Libya, Iraq, and Syria. The key is verse 5 where it explains that the Arabs perpetual hatred of Israel and by association Christians and their acts of terrorism against civilians is the cause of their current, and upcoming destruction. Civil war is destroying the Arab nations from within. They have have killed innocent Jews at a time when God is restoring the fortunes of the nation of Israel.
